Well I wanted Brielle to have a sock monkey one, but I had a hard time finding one I like! Then I found the Etsy shop PaddyCake Designs and fell in love with her personalized blankies! Same size as Raya's and also backed in super soft minky fabric. I had contemplated making my own blanket, and I"m sure I could have done something, but in the end I decided my time was better spent making Etsy orders because my hourly rate working on my own sales is much better than the cost savings versus time it'd take me to make a blanket LOL.
In the end Kelly at PaddyCake Designs was able to let me send her all my leftover fabrics from Brielle's birthday outfit, plus a cream sock monkey fabric I had never used for anything yet, and she made this awesome quilt from the fabrics I sent...so cute!
I thought she was very reasonably priced and she even gave me a discount since I sent my own fabrics, so it worked out nicely! She was really quick too...like less than 2 weeks!
|She did a girlie rick rack trim on the top and bottom|
|I feel a little badly now that Raya's is kinda "plain"!! But she loves it :-)|
|Matching fruit loop colors to the colored hearts|
|Complete the pattern|
|Eating the fruit loops :-P|
|She did great with the do-a-dot marker valentine page|
|This was really cute. There were different shapes on each branch and also shapes on each owl belly...|
so you matched the correct owl to each branch!
|Thanks for baby Dee Dee!!! (My dad named this doll....Dee Dee is in honor of them haha...since both of their names|
start with D)
|Right after Dee Dee was dropped by Brielle. Raya was waiting to see if I was going to make her give it back! lol|
|Baby Boo is now Brielle's I guess!|
|The evil plotting big sister|
